Q.  I don’t have a username and password.  How do I sign up?

A.  Go to Request Access Now.


Q.  I requested log in credentials but I don’t recall receiving them.  What do I do?

A. Please check your email for a message from sender fdorg_help@ao.uscourts.gov. That email contains information on your log in credentials.  If you  cannot locate it, please use the Forgot your password? form to set up a new password. If you are still having issues, please contact fdorg_help@ao.uscourts.gov


Q.  I have log in credentials but I can’t recall what my username/email is.  How do I find out?

A.  Your username/email is the email address that you indicated on the online form you filled out to request login credentials.  It is also the email address we used to notify you that your request for access was granted.


Q.   I have log in credentials but I forgot my password.  What do I do?

A.  Go to Forgot your password? 


Q.  I know my log in credentials but they don’t work.  What do I do?

A.  Contact fdorg_help@ao.uscourts.gov.


Q.  I have registered online for Training Division training events and webinars in the past.  When I try to use the same user name and password to log into fd.org now, they won't work.  Why?

A.  Our online event registration system and the system used to secure our written legal resources and recorded training presentations are not the same. The user name and password that you have been using to register for our events will still work when you register for future events; you do not need to log into the site through this page in order to register for a training event.   If, however, you want access to our password-protected written legal resources and recorded training presentations, you need to apply for log in credentials using the form on our Request Access Now page.
